Intro to Global Resolve:

Water system in Fawomanye

The village of Fawomanye, Ghana, has no clean water supply, but instead uses a polluted drainage pond for cooking, drinking and washing. GlobalResolve is working on a permanent solution water purifier for the village that creates distilled water from any source using very little energy in a patented process developed by Prof. Jim Beckman in chemical engineering at ASU.
